Tamarix tetrandra is a shrub or small tree with needled leaves. It bears pale pink flowers produced in racemes in mid-spring and has earned a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit. Also known as Four-stamen Tamarisk, this low maintenance medium-sized plant produces attractive arching black stems that are particularly suitable for coastal conditions. Although preferring acid (ericaceous) soil, Tamarix will grow in most free-draining soils with full sun. It will need some protection from cold drying winds in colder locations and is best planted in sheltered sites.
How to propagate Tamarisk
